9 DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAMS 3.0 MASTER OF ARTS DEGREE 3.1 The Master Degree Program Acceptance into the graduate program is a two-step process that begins with application for acceptance to the University. Persons applying for entry into the graduate program in psychology must first be admitted to the University. Application forms for the University may be obtained from a major library, community college, another California State University or on-line at the CSLA homepage. The Psychology Department offers a mentor-based graduate Masters of Arts degree program. Students are encouraged to contact a faculty member in the area of research in which they are interested before applying to the University. Positions in the department are limited and acceptance into the program depends on students finding someone on the faculty who will agree to serve as a mentor. Acceptance by a faculty member as a mentor is required for admission to the department (See Application Form). The Master of Arts degree in psychology is a rigorous program designed to develop research and conceptual skills for students whose primary interest is in continuing their education in a doctoral program. A key feature of the program is a close mentoring relationship with a faculty member who oversees the student's progress toward his or her individual research goals Application Process Students will need to submit an application by April 10 th of any given year for consideration for the following September. Students are responsible for providing all materials to accompany their application and only complete applications will be processed. Applicants will be notified of their status following their submission. In addition to materials required for admission to the University, students will need to submit (a) Two letters of recommendation, (b) a statement of purpose, and (c) application form for the Masters of Arts degree. (See Section 13.0) Students are required to have a grade point average (GPA) of 2.75 to be eligible for the Masters of Arts degree program. Students with a GPA below 2.75 will not be considered Mentoring Students who are admitted to the graduate program will be assigned to a mentor, for advisement and program planning. The mentor supervises the student's completion of the program, but mentors can be changed if a student's interests change and an alternate is available. Students' specific requirements to meet individual academic needs are developed in conjunction with the mentor. 9

10 .0 MASTER OF SCIENCE DEGREE: MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPY OPTION This program meets the educational requirements for state licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist as set forth by the State of California. Our program is designed to be completed in a minimum of two years. However, the applicant should be aware that before being eligible to sit for the State licensing examination a candidate for the MFT license must acquire 3,000 hours of acceptable supervised experience in a state approved settings in addition to completing the educational requirements. Of the entire 3,000 hours of required supervised experience, the State requires that a minimum of 1,500 hours be acquired after receipt of the Master's Degree with an option in Marriage and Family Therapy. Further, no credit can be given for experience gathered prior to enrollment in an acceptable MFT educational program. Credit towards the pre-master s degree hours may be gained through participation in the courses on Directed Clinical Practice, PSY 585. Additionally, the State prescribes that the total 3,000 hours of acceptable supervised experience may not be accrued in less than 10 weeks (two complete years). Therefore, the applicant who looks forward to MFT licensure must anticipate a commitment of three and onehalf to four years from entry into this program to eligibility to sit for the State licensing examination. The Psychology Department admits a maximum of 15 new students a year to our MFT program. Admission is in the Fall Quarter only. The MFT Program of the CSULA Psychology Department is responsive to cultural diversity. We are committed to sensitivity and equity in education and service to members of all groups. It is expected that students accepted to the program will share this commitment..1 Application Procedure An applicant to this program must apply to both the Psychology Department MFT program and to the Graduate Division of California State University, Los Angeles. The applicant should be aware that Department and University deadlines are not identical. Students choosing this option should first apply to the Department (See Section 12.0) and once accepted, then apply to the University.

Both options are accredited by the Association for Behavior Analysis. In Psychology, Applied Behavior Analysis is an optional curriculum in the Master of Science program. It is comprised of 57 quarter units, including courses offered by both Departments. The option is designed to develop specialized professional competence in the application of behavior analysis to counseling, and to the education of normal, autistic and developmentally disabled children. The curriculum also prepares interested students for doctoral training in this, and related areas. Application The application must be accompanied by a brief, but complete, letter of intent containing a personal summary of your interest in Applied Behavior Analysis, your plans for specialization, and any experience you have had in this area. Also, submit two academic letters of recommendation and official transcripts attached to your application. Deadline for student applications is March 1st. Notification of application status will be by September 1st. In addition to the requirements for application to the University and the Department, completion of the MS program in Applied Behavior Analysis requires a personal interview with members of the Departments of Psychology and Counselor Education for placement in the required fieldwork component of the program. To insure that this eligibility is established, and will not prevent completion of the program, students are strongly advised to complete this interview as part of the process of application. The interview is conducted jointly by members of the Departments of Psychology and Counselor Education, and may be arranged by contacting Dr. Hank Schlinger in Psychology. The interview should be completed before any class work is begun.

17 PROCEDURES FOR COMPLETING MASTER S DEGREE 7.0 STEPS TO BECOME A CLASSIFIED GRADUATE STUDENT 7.1 Satisfy the Writing Proficiency Requirement. Students must pass the Writing Proficiency Examination during the first two quarters of their Masters Program. The examination is listed as UNIV 00 in the current Schedule of Classes. Those who do not pass this examination by the end of the second quarter in residence will be suspended from further work on their programs until they have passed the examination. 7.2 Establish an official Masters Program. The steps for accomplishing this are as follows: After receiving a letter of acceptance from the university or department, make an appointment with your mentor to discuss your enrollment status Complete the worksheet (See Section 12.0) for the Masters degree in Psychology with the assistance of your Mentor. For Marriage and Family Therapy see Dr. Anson Levine; for the Forensic Psychology program see Dr. Mitchell Eisen Return the completed worksheet to the Graduate Secretary (KH C310). Students will be notified by mail when to return to the office to sign their official program Within one quarter students will receive a letter from the Associate Dean of the College of Natural and Social Sciences confirming their classification Graduate programs can be changed however, the application form (Form: GS-5) for a change must be made before the course to be substituted is completed. Students are permitted to take additional courses not on their programs No more than 13 units of graduate credit, post-bachelor s degree and prior to classified standing may be applied to a Master s program in the psychology department. These credits may be completed at CSLA or another university. No credit toward graduation is given for courses taken at a community college or courses which are not listed on the student s official program Classified standing means the student has an approved master s degree program filed in the school graduate studies office and signed by the student s mentor, department chair and Dean. 8.0 GRADUATE CORE REQUIREMENTS: Graduate core courses must be completed within the first 16 units in order to be eligible to advance to candidacy. A grade of "B" must be attained in graduate core courses to continue in the graduate program. 8.1 Research Methodology (one course). All students must choose one course from the following: PSY 11 Advanced Research Methods in Psychology, PSY 1 Analysis of Variance, PSY 17 Single Case Research Design PSY 91 Methods of Data Analysis PSY 50 Sem: Advanced Experimental Methods PSY 515 Sem: Advanced Statistical Methods Students who have completed the equivalent of these courses as an undergraduate with a grade of "B" or better, need not repeat these courses as graduate courses. The requirement must be met within the first 16 units of coursework taken or within the first two quarters. 13

18 9.0 ADVANCEMENT TO CANDIDACY 9.1 Students should submit an Application for Advancement to Candidacy (FormGS-10) upon completing 16 units of their graduate program. These may be obtained from any of the departmental Secretaries. The 16 units of course work completed must include the graduate core courses and the WPE. In order to continue in the graduate program the student must have achieved a grade of 3.0 or better in the core courses (see catalog, pg. 605). 9.2 Only students who have been advanced to candidacy may enroll in the following courses: PSY 585 Directed Clinical Practice PSY 590 Practicum in Counseling PSY 595 Field Experience in Psychology PSY 596 Comprehensive Examination PSY 597 Graduate Research PSY 598 Directed Graduate Study, and PSY 599 Thesis 10.0 THESIS OR COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION In planning a program, students in the Master of Arts, the M.S. Forensic Option are required to submit a thesis as a culminating experience for the Masters Degree. Students in the MFT program complete a comprehensive examination The Thesis Option (PSY 597 and PSY 599) The thesis option is generally open only to students in the Master of Arts and the M.S. Forensic Option. In special cases, other students who have a faculty member willing to sponsor them may apply to do a thesis. The thesis consists of either an original empirical research project or a novel theoretical or conceptual interpretation of existing psychological thought based on material previously published. In either case, the thesis must deal with a problem of some importance to the field of psychology, in a manner that is scholarly, logical, objective, and systematic. PSY 597 The first step in the process of doing a thesis is to complete Psy 597. It is recommended that student begin thinking about their thesis topic several quarters before beginning Psy 597. During this course, the student is expected to establish a suitable topic, review pertinent literature, design their study or topic, and write a proposal. The proposal includes a statement of the proposed topic, review of literature on the topic, and, for empirical studies, a statement of hypotheses to be tested and the research methodology to be used. The student should identify two additional faculty members willing to serve on their thesis committee. The proposal should be approved by the thesis chair and by the two other committee members. The three committee members should sign a GS-12 form, this form plus a copy of your proposal must be filed in the Psychology Office by the seventh week of the quarter in which PSY 597 is taken. 1

19 Psy 599 The next step is for the student to enroll in Psy 599. Upon approval of the research design by the thesis committee, the student will undertake the thesis, working under the guidance of the thesis chair. One year from the point of first enrollment in Psy 599 is allowed to complete the thesis units. If the thesis is not completed after registering in all of the 599 units on the program (maximum=), the student must register for Psy 900 (which carries no credit) in order to complete thesis requirements and graduate. Progressively revised drafts of the thesis will be submitted to the chair of the thesis committee periodically for review and comment. The chair may, from time to time, require the student to submit copies to other members of the committee as well. The final draft must show clarity of purpose, competent critical analysis, tight organization, and originality. The presentation must be both accurate and complete. In style, it must follow the recommendations of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (latest edition). It should include a separate title page and the following sections: ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION METHODOLOGY RESULTS DISCUSSION REFERENCES APPENDICES A brief summary of both the problem and results. Definition of the problem, development of the background, and statement of the study's purpose and rationale. Information and subjects, apparatus, measures and procedures. (This section and the next may not apply to a non-experimental thesis.) A complete factual statement of the findings, including any tables, figures, and statistical analyses. This section should include a thoughtful and logical analysis of the implications of the findings as well as conclusions that can be drawn, and any limitations. The references should reflect a thorough literature review of the salient literature dealing with the subject. Copying of letters, forms, measures, or other written materials used in the study. After the draft has been approved by the thesis committee, a date is fixed for the final oral defense of the thesis. An abstract and copy of the thesis should be submitted to committee members at least two weeks before the oral defense. The student is required to prepare and bring to the oral defense the following materials for committee signature: The Title Approval Page (Form GS-13) in triplicate and one copy of The Final Oral Examination Results Page. These materials are available at the psychology office. The oral defense is open to any who wish to attend. After a successful oral defense, the student must return both of the above forms to the psychology office. Final thesis corrections are made and a final typed thesis with copies are prepared for distribution. Students are advised to consult with the thesis advisor in the Library at an early date, in order to conform to the Library requirements. The original must be delivered to the University Library, in the required format, no later than the last day of final exams in the quarter of graduation. The Library also requires two original copies of the title page, with the appropriate signatures. Another bound copy of the thesis should be made for the Psychology Department Office. Additional copies, as required by committee members should be prepared as needed. 15

20 10.2 The Comprehensive Exam Option: (PSY 596 and PSY 598 for MFT Students Only) PSY 598 Students taking the comprehensive examination, will usually have 2-3 units of PSY 598 Graduate Directed Study on their programs which provides an opportunity for guidance of work done in preparation for the examination. The student should complete their PSY 598 units under faculty supervision during the quarter prior to enrolling in the comprehensive exams. Typically, students will work independently with their advisor who will guide their study, recommend reading materials and give feedback on their preparation. For more information students should consult Dr. Brigitte Matthies. The Comprehensive Examination in the MFT program consists of two areas: 1. A Multiple Choice Exam covering broad principles of psychology as a scientific discipline. 2. Essays on Clinical Vignettes covering issues of diagnostics, therapy, ethics, judgement and the law. The examination is given on two successive days, during Spring and Fall quarters only, in sessions lasting three hours each day. The first day, covers areas one; the second day covers area two. The student is required to write on two clinical vignettes. Each examination response will be scored on a pass/fail basis, being read independently by at least two professors. To pass the examination, a student must receive "pass" scores from both professors on two of the four questions. In the case of a split evaluation on a comps question, a third reader will be asked to evaluate the question. A student who successfully passes two questions on a particular day but does not pass overall, does not have to repeat the portion passed on a subsequent sitting. A student who enters the examination room, and then leaves without attempting an answer, will be considered to have "sat" for that examination. The comprehensive examination must be passed within three sittings. Students may have no more than one course remaining to complete on their graduate program following the quarter in which they first take the comprehensive examination. Students must formally apply to take the examination the quarter before it is scheduled. This is done by filing an application with the graduate secretary of the Psychology Department. They must also register for PSY 596 (0) during the quarter in which they expect to take the examination. Those who subsequently wish to withdraw from taking the examination without penalty may do so no later than the scheduled date of the examination by notifying the graduate secretary. The faculty will from time to time prepare up-to-date lists of suggested readings to assist students in preparing for the examination. However, students are expected to show an acceptable breadth of mastery in the field, acquired not only from the lists of recommended readings, but also from class work. 16
